Spice Muffins


Muffins are a warm comfort food for those cooler, crisp Autumn mornings. The smells that permeate from these tasty little creatures makes the entire house smell DIVINE! The smell alone will wake any of your sleepy headed family members, but the taste of these will get them going and ready for their day! Eat UP!

Spice Muffins

2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. all-spice
1/2 t. salt
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. melted butter (cooled slightly)
2 eggs
3/4 c. milk
1/4 t. vanilla

Topping:
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
5 T butter, cut into small squares

Spray muffin tins or line with muffin cups (spray muffin liners with cooking spray as well). Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Topping instructions:
Combine all dry ingredient. Whisk together. Add butter and stir with a pastry cutter until combined and small pea sized crumbs form. Set aside. 

Muffin instructions:
Mix dry ingredient in a mixing bowl. Stir to insure that all lumps are gone. In a separate bowl mix melted butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir until combined. Pour liquid over the dry ingredient and stir just until moistened. Batter will be lumpy. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, divide batter into muffin cups. Top with crumb topping. Bake for 17 minutes or until muffins are done. Cool slightly before serving. Serve with butter and a dollop of strawberry jam if desired.
